(ThePatriotSource.com)- Far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t even consider the possibility of working with Republicans on one single area of agreement, and chose to baselessly claim that Senator Ted Cruz wants her to be murdered the moment he expressed agreement.
When Ocasio-Cortez slammed the decision by trading app “Robinhood” to cease retail trading on certain tickers, including GameStop, Senator Cruz retweeted in the spirit of bipartisanship and said, “Fully agree.”

Ocasio said that Congress needs to know more about Robinhood’s decision to block retail investors from purchasing stock, while hedge funds are freely able to trade as normal.
Once it dawned on Ocasio-Cortez that this might be an area of agreement with Republicans, she chose to smear Cruz.
“I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out,” she incorrectly claimed.
I am happy to work with Republicans on this issue where there’s common ground, but you almost had me murdered 3 weeks ago so you can sit this one out.
Happy to work w/ almost any other GOP that aren’t trying to get me killed.
In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign. https://t.co/4mVREbaqqm

Ocasio-Cortez did not explain how Cruz almost got her killed, but appears to have been referring to the January 5 Capitol Hill unrest, where a gang of left-wing and right-wing extremists stormed the Capitol Building.
Senator Cruz and all Republicans condemned the violence, President Donald Trump told protestors to go home and remain peaceful, and yet, the Democrats have claimed that it was a Republican-backed “insurrection” ever since.
“In the meantime if you want to help, you can resign,” AOC added. Her comment comes after she and other high-profile Democrats, including Beto O’Rourke who lost to Senator Cruz in the 2018 midterms, called for Cruz to resign.
Cruz is blamed by the most radical wing of the Democrats for “inciting” violence on January 6 for supporting President Donald Trump’s efforts to ensure election integrity. Cruz was one of a dozen Republican senators who objected to the certification of some Electoral College votes and originally planned to force a ten-day debate in Congress.
The debate would have allowed evidence of fraud and misconduct in the 2020 presidential election to be presented in Congress, but the violence on January 6 ensured that didn’t happen.
